The AFP MS chapter organized to advance ethical and effective fundraising in Mississippi and to further education for fundraising professionals and increase awareness of the fundraising profession. This active chapter includes members from all corners of the state - from small, community-based nonprofits to large, institutional nonprofits.
AFP MS has been a 10 Star Chapter since 2010 and recently was awarded the 2014 Friends of Diversity designation. Our monthly meetings are held at lunchtime on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Calendar
We offer the Chamberlain Scholarship annually to a first-time member who needs financial support for AFP membership and attendance to the AFP International Fundraising Conference.
In 2012, the chapter began to host a one-day statewide Fundraising Conference. In 2015 we partnered with The Positoned for Progress Conference to offer an in-depth conference for the Mission-Based sector.
